Mouse vs. Concrete

Dramatic, some may say epic video of poor mouse's escape from the clutches of concrete... made for Centraal Beheer Insurances (Netherlands). Watch other brilliant video ads for the same Dutch client, featuring Bill Clinton, or some poor guy at the picnic.

I caught a basket star early this year at about 100mtrs depth while fishing for Dublin Bay prawn/Norway Lobster. And that was between the islands on the west side of Norway.
It looked kinda alien so I threw it back in the sea, but I took a picture first.
Here it is: http://yfrog.com/hqdsc01193jj

Cheers mate!
